181 nautical miles at a speed of 130 knots
Im using a combo box with all my destinations and 2 text boxs one labeled distance the other time.
my drop down box of destinations will give a list of different numbers using a export value of a number i select to match the picked destanation Im having the distance text box calculate using the text field properties sum(+) to get the number. It only show the same number as I provided as the export value. This is ok I can see all the distances to the matching one on the drop box.
The time box having problems with is the time box I need it to use the number in the distance box to calculate the time.
The Distance is the only number that changes for example city (A) was picked it gives a number of 130 I need the time box to calculate this in to a time. Distance (130 nautical miles) divided by the speed of 130 knots I need this to show me a time of 1 or one hour.
so using the text field properties of the time text box how do i get it to find the number 130 from the text box distance and make the calculations.
Custom Calculation Script ?
Thank you
Do you know any scripting?
Do you know the arithmetical operands, specifically division?
You might be able to use the simplified field notation if you field names start with a alphabetic character and consist of only alphanumeric characters, no spaces or other special characters.
Distance / 130
I know 0 scripting
If I can get two of the same drop down boxs to link IE: move one the other follows.
I did get this to work using the Product (X) but i could not change the export value of it to use for the time box it changes every thing.
Is there a easy way to get them to link move the same time but not have the export value linked?
Or just a code to do this and place where or how?
thank you
